One of the findings was that high lease costs, poor management of rentals and the absence of reliable immovable asset registers in some provinces inflated property costs. Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan wrote to the premiers and their finance MECs to outline suggested improvements to reduce cost and increase value for money in each province
Malema in EFF manifesto said “EFF government will cut cost of ministers (no more car and houses as they receive salaries that can afford it)
The new economic order we seek cannot just be a pact among elites, a coalition among stakeholders with vested interests. Nor can it be built on populist slogans or unrealistic promises, "We have to work together to radically change our economy. This means working with our major businesses so that they sparkle across the globe. It meant working with black entrepreneurs to grow their companies across South Africa, and beyond, working with small and large businesses to build value-chain linkages that supported dynamic, export-oriented, competitive enterprises.
I never thought there Gordhan know about forgotten South African. He said "It means bringing those who are marginalised into the mainstream of opportunity and activity. It means a better standard of living for all. And that is Malema’s everyday talking.
He continued saying "It is time for a bold vision of our future, as set out in the National Development Plan. It is time for action and implementation. It is time to move South Africa forward to the next stage of our historic journey to more rapid growth, jobs and development - time to leave behind poverty, joblessness and inequality." And I said to myself, is he talking on behalf of ANC or South Africa?
Gordhan said that while the global economic outlook remained unsteady, South Africa's economy had continued to grow, but more slowly than projected a year ago. So please Economist, never ever tell me about the economic growth of South Africa.
Johannesburg - It is wrong to leave the ANC and form a political party out of anger, Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula said on Saturday. At Tembisa.
"The ANC is not about positions... positions will go and the ANC will still be here," he said in an apparent jibe at EFF leader Julius Malema. I said to myself, he believes that ANC can lose position. Thank you Mbalula for accepting, you have to tell fellow ANC members. Mbalula was addressing African National Congress Youth League supporters at an election festival in Tembisa, east of Johannesburg.
Last time when I check, ANCYL was broke. But The party's bikers club and a Mini Cooper brigade roared into the stadium. Expensive artist were invited to call attention of young Tembisa people.
KwaZulu-Natal receives the largest budget of all the provinces in terms of equitable share, according to the 2014 Budget tabled on Wednesday. The province would receive R78bn for 2014/15, followed by Gauteng with R68.6bn and the Eastern Cape with R52bn. Limpopo receives R43.2bn, the Western Cape R35.6bn, Mpumalanga R29.3bn and the North-West R24.7bn.The provinces with the lowest budgets are Free State with R20.8bn and the Northern Cape with R9.6bn.So Zuma still have more to spend as budget for his home is higher than Limpopo where text book are unavailable. So fellow South Africa never ever say Limpopo people are uneducated as we have no study material and we have to wall many kilometres under 45% heat of our province.
